Ours has been a remarkable achievement. Thank you for sending me the reading materials about Apollo. I had a chance to go through them just before the launch. I am delighted by your offer to help at the University, and I expect to call on you often. We’re looking forward to having you visit us and be with us.” In fine condition, with a couple of paperclip impressions to top edge and some light mirroring of text.
